Carpenter, the Seahawks’ top pick in 2011, will start at left guard. Paul McQuistan will move from left guard to right guard and replace John Moffitt, who is inactive due to a knee injury.

Linebacker Leroy Hill was listed as questionable due to a calf injury but is active.

For the Rams, running back Steven Jackson (groin) is active.

Seattle’s inactives: WR Charly Martin, S Winston Guy, CB Danny Gorrer, CB Byron Maxwell, G John Moffitt, DT Jaye Howard, DE Greg Scruggs.

St. Louis’ inactves: QB Austin Davis, WR Steve Smith, RB Isaiah Pead, S Matthew Daniels, DT Matthew Conrath, T Rodger Saffold, DT Jermelle Cudjo.
